Activities for students

Activity 1 : Apprentice mediator

The Mediation Clinic offers law students the opportunity to assist mediators in the mediation process. In addition to performing administrative tasks within the clinic, these students will be able to participate in the preparation and conduct of various mediation processes as assistant mediators.

The mediation clinic of the Université de Montréal offers the opportunity to benefit from three mediation sessions lasting two and a half hours each, for free (except for a 25$ fee per participants to open a file)

If you would like to be part of our next group of mediator assistants, feel free to email us at


Activity 2 : Presentations to targeted groups and to school students


This activity allows students to participate directly in the mission of CMUM to promote mediation to the general public. Students will have the opportunity to initiate a variety of individuals and companies or high school students to participatory justice and mediation. Students will then have the opportunity to develop presentations and simulations based on the needs and potential uses of the target group or the age of the audience, and then conduct these interactive workshops themselves.

Activity 3 : Scientific research

The Journal of Arbitration and Mediation is the first bilingual peer-reviewed journal in Canada devoted entirely to alternative dispute resolution (ADR). It is the result of a joint initiative between the law faculties of the Université de Sherbrooke, the Université de Montréal, Osgoode Hall Law School and the Winkler Institute for Dispute Resolution.


More information on this activity will be updated on this page during the academic year!




Activity 4 : International commercial mediation competition of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC)

The mediation clinic of the Université de Montréal wants to send a team of four students to the international competition ICC which will take place from February 2 to 7 in Paris. This major event brings together  66 university teams for 6 days. This is the first time that the University of Montreal will send a team for this event.


This activity allows students, through simulations based on practical cases in international law, to develop their knowledge and skills in mediation. After each simulation, students will receive feedback from judges on the quality of their negotiations and on their ability to benefit from the presence of a mediator to reach an agreement in a mediation process. .


If you would like to be part of the team that will represent the University of Montreal, please contact us at Do not forget to include a copy of your resume.
